Screen Savers

Updated July 26/16

We all know that screen doors keep the bugs out but let the fresh air and

Line art of a door screen.

cooling breeze in, but they don’t work so well when they are knocked off of their hinges.  Yep, we’ve all been there at some point, you have a get together and someone at some point manages to walk right through the screen door!  Granted, it is kinda hard to tell when the door is open and when it’s closed, especially if you are a little bleary eyed from sleep deprivation, yea that’s it, you’re just a little tired.

So I ask you, how is it that a butterfly can be more powerful that Aunt Pattie with that one too many extra large glass of red, or a dragonfly more dominant than Uncle Doug hoisting his stein?

Well I’ll tell ya, when its a SCREEN SAVER!

Dragonfly Screen Saver

Butterfly Screen Saver

Each Dragonfly or Butterfly Screen Saver is handcrafted by little ol’ me using either hand hammered copper or brass wire and beads.  Just thread the tail through the screen on the door and walla your screen door is now safe from all intruders big or small!  Yep, they even work on Munchkins when they are excitedly running out the door to play in the sprinkler or running back in to get a popsicle.  Just remember to place on a little lower as their eyes are closer to the ground 😉

Even though they are all the same, every one is different and come carded on a piece of screen.  (clever huh 🙂 )  They sell for $10.00

They sell quickly so if you’d like to order one or two, just let me know if you’d like a dragonfly or butterfly, copper or brass wire and your choice of bead colour and I’ll make them up for you.  Each and every one is handcrafted so no two will ever look the same.

All the ones you see below have been sold, so they are just a few examples of the different styles I make with the beads I have available.

 

 

So there you have it, Screen Savers, brought to you by the muddled mind of me 🙂  Not just a pretty decoration, but a mighty bug thats less expensive than replacing a door 🙂

TTFN, Sherry

Say Hello To My Little Friends

Twice a year in Mount Forest we have this gathering at the old fair grounds called Fur & Feather.  It happens the last Sunday in April and the first Sunday in October, where people from all over come and sell absolutely anything and everything to do with critters large and small.  And other folks show up and have a look at what’s for sale.

Last Sunday Brian and I took a walk over to have a look around.  We’ve gone other years and managed to come away without any additions to our family.   Well, not this year (she says with a big silly grin on her face.)  Just shortly after we arrived we stopped and looked at these tiny little birds… oooh so cute 🙂  Then we wandered on.  As we were walking I took mental notes here and there about the price of various bird cages…. my plan was already “hatching” you see 🙂

As we were strolling we saw lots of geese, some in bags, bunches of bunnies of all descriptions, pot bellied pigs, chickens with fuzzy feet, llamas, and all manner of critter and critter accoutrements that were to be had at a reasonable price.  But as we neared the end of our walk, my mind was on those little tiny birds we first spied on our way in.  I casually mentioned them to Brian.  He said no.  I said, but they are so cute.  He said no.  I said, how long is this going to take?  Here’s a bit of back story to that last statement.  When we were first married I wanted a kitten, it took a little over 2 hours to talk him into getting her.  We had Frankenstein for a little over 18 years.  Then I wanted doves, it only took about an hour of convincing to get them.  Our last trip to a pet store was his idea to get some bettas, you see fish have never been a problem, but while we were there I saw a lionhead bunny, it took about 20 minute of cajoling.  Unfortunately the little guy wasn’t well and he didn’t make it 😦  So a friend gave me another bunny.  So you see we have a bit of a pattern forming.  He said what are you going to keep them in.  I said I saw a bird cage back there for $10.  He said did you bring any money.  I said no 😦  Then I said well lets just go have one more peek at them.  He followed 🙂

As we were walking to were the birds were he kept saying, they’re gone, they aren’t there anymore, but ah ha, there they were.  These sweet little birds are called Society Finches. We took a peek in the one little cage and there was one looking at us with a Moe, from the three stooges, haircut!!!  Done, we’ve got us some birds.

Meet KoKo and Moe.

KoKo and Moe

Here’s a better picture of Moe’s haircut.

Moe's Haircut

Moe is a Crested Society Finch.  KoKo is a Chocolate Society Finch and I think may be a little camera shy because all he/she would show me was his/her rump when I was snapping pictures.  Moe was a little more easy, probably showing off the doo, he/she was the only Crested one in the cage and KoKo the only Chocolate one 🙂

So after spending all the money Brian had with him on these two sweeties and a home for them, we headed homeward ourselves.  When we got home, I washed up the cage while Brian headed to the grocery store to get them some food.

Once they were in there new home with food and water it only took them about 1/2 hour to settle into their new surroundings.  This whole time our cat Cleopatra was ignorantly sleeping in her bedroom… yes she has her own bedroom, and no that’s not weird, to us at least.  When she finally did come down to the living room to join us she noticed them sitting on top of a decorative pillar that we have.  She of course wanted to give them a good looking over and possibly a bit of a nibble, so we ended up putting them in our dressing room for the night for the peace of mind for everyone involved.

Yesterday Brian went to our hardware store to get a hook to put in the ceiling so that they will be safely out of the way of Cleopatra who is taking on the roll of Sylvester after tweetie bird way too well.

Here they are with there new home high in the sky.

And for the rest of the day Cleopatra did this

Cleopatra

And this

Cleopatra

I think it really pooped her out because she didn’t have the energy to chase or be chased by Sampress our Bunny.  Here she is just nuzzling with him.

Cleo & Sampress

Then she finally gave up a flaked out on the back of the chair.

Just too pooped to care anymore.

I think, no, I know she is really miffed at me for bringing in these two, but now she knows how Sampress felt when she usurped his position as the cutest one in the house! We are still going to be putting the birds in the dressing room at night or when we aren’t at home just to keep things safe and so the Cleopatra doesn’t completely exhaust herself.

Well, now that I’ve finished writing this post, I’m going to try and make a little nest for the finches.  I went to the dollar store this morning but they don’t carry anything for birds at all 😦  So with some jute, and a crochet hook, I’m gonna try and crochet them a nest, unfortunately I can’t crochet a cuttle bone for them, so that’ll just have to wait.

Until next time,

Sherry

Christmas 2011

Oh my where has the time gone?  It’s been ages since I’ve posted, but I do have a good excuse… I think :}  First off, my husband I were incredibly busy with rehearsals and then the performances of “A Bad Year For Tomatoes”.  We had a blast and from all accounts so did our audiences.  Then I got sick.  It took a couple of weeks to recover from whatever plague I contracted, but other than a lingering cough I’m better.  Then I got busy again.  So, lets catch up with what I’ve been up to for the Christmas Season.

First of all, the Christmas tree was put up (side down) a little later than usual, but here she is in all her upside down glory!

Upside Down Christmas Tree 2011

Most people love my upside down tree, others could take it or leave it… then there are those weird few who think there is some sinister reason that I hang the Christmas Tree upside down.  Well, there is a very good explanation for it and if you are interested in finding out what it is click here.

Now let’s have a peek at some of the new items I have in for Christmas 2011.

Our first goodies are hand crafted construction vehicles.  Made by Keith Massey, these vehicles are made entirely of wood, are about 1/24th scale and are moveable.  Do you have a guy who is impossible to buy for?  These just may be what Santa ordered 🙂

1/24th Wood Hi-Hoe $99.00

1/24th scale Skid Steer $99.00

1/24 scale Bull Dozer $99.00

1/24th scale Back Hoe $99.00

1/24th scale Fire Truck $299.00

Aren’t theses just fabulous!?  The detail is just crazy!  Within 24 hours of having them on display in my store window I sold my first piece!  Anyway, if you are interested in seeing more pictures of these pieces just drop me a line, I’d be happy to email them to you.

Now lets have a peek at a few girly things 🙂

Chocolate flavored Lip Gloss $3.99 ea

These are absolutely yummy, but wait, they’ll last for more than a bite or two, and they won’t melt in your purse or hand.  Under neath the chocolaty candy coating is Chocolate Flavored Lip Gloss.  How real do these look!  What a great stocking stuffer for any lady on you list!

Crystal Nail Files $9.99 ea

Crystal Nail Files are extremely smooth and gentle and yet highly effective. Metal files and emery boards tear the nail as they file leaving rough, sharp edges. Crystal Nail Files glide across the nail, sealing the tip as they file. You can quickly shape your nails to a beautiful, flawless finish.  They work on both natural and artificial nails and can be cleaned with soap and water.  They are durable and won’t wear down like regular nail files.  And, you can fly with them… no I don’t mean put one in each hand and start flapping, I mean since they have rounded ends and don’t come to a point like other nail files they can be taken on an air plane!  They come in a range of animal prints and are generously sized measuring 7 3/4″ long by just over 3/4″ wide and come in a plastic sleeve.  I’ve seen these in other stores and online for upwards of $20 or more, but I’ve got a fantastic supplier and can sell them for just $9.99 each.

Now, just for giggles I’m gonna tempt your sweet tooth 🙂

Birnn Chocolate Truffles!

Birnn Truffles $9.99 ea

These European style truffles use fresh heavy cream to make an assortment of flavored ganache centers, then they are dipped in milk, dark or white chocolate.  Always enjoy truffles at room temperature to savor their richness.  6 piece assorted gift box $9.99 ea.

Chocolate Box with Candy $9.99

We’ve got just a few of these left, I really should have ordered more.  Milk chocolate box filled with Christmas candy.  When you’ve finished all the candy, you get to eat the box… how environmentally friendly is that!  $9.99 each.

And finally here’s what’s happening in down town Mount Forest.  I’ve joined the Chamber Christmas promotion again this year and we have a few special events happening

Christmas Ad

Today is Ladies Night.  I’ll be open until 8 pm for your shopping convenience and here is our In Store Special for today.

Paisley & Animal Print Scarves $14.99 ea

Reg. price is $14.99 each Today in store and online just $9.99 ea.  Brown and Blue available as shown.

December 16 & 17 is Dedicated to the Guys.  For the fellas I’ll be open until 8 pm both evenings and I’ll gift wrap your purchases for you 🙂

Starting this Sunday I’ll be open 7 days a week until Christmas Eve.  Our Christmas Hours are:

Sunday 12 – 3

Friday 10 -5:30

Well, I guess that’s about it. Christmas is coming quicker than we think.  Time is getting short for getting packages out through the mail so place your orders real soon if you want it in time for Christmas.

TTFN and Merry Christmas everyone 🙂
